  1. Don't know for sure, but sometimes it's simply getting older, bigger, and stronger. Machado looked like he was going to break the record for doubles for awhile in his first full year. Then some of those turned into HR's. Hall might develop more power as he matures if he continues making contact
  2. If they take Witt and try to get him to sign under slot, what is the chance that he would balk and head off to a JC?
  3. Didn't see any of the higher stuff, but it was only two innings.
  4. I was at the Delmarva game in Asheville last night. Took my 8 year old granddaughter and 5 year old grandson to their first baseball game. The boy bailed after 2.5 innings, but the girl wants to go to the game with me tonight. She also wants to learn how to hit Grayson did not look sharp at all I think the stadium gun is slow. Didn't see anything above the low 90's last night and only a few times when I saw Bundy's debut way back when.
  5. Your last prediction would be fine if it meant he was busy circling the bases 45+ times.
  6. Yeah, but what did he have for breakfast in the morning. Wow, what an analysis! Thanks.
  7. I live in NC, Asheville And see all the O’s I want with an MLB.com streaming subscription. Rarely blacked out.
  8. Now I understand the logic and it makes sense if you’re willling to bet that August rotation could pitch enough innings while surviving physically and mentally. I’m not convinced they’re ready to be thrown into the deep end.
  9. Just avoiding becoming the target for batted balls would be a great start.
  10. Don't understand the logic here. We would trade three starters, but not Bundy because "we will need someone to start games."
  11. Brings up an interesting question for the top pick. When he was with Houston, I suspect he was focused on who would be available towards the end of the 2019 first round, not at the top. I hope that means he will personally see some of the guys who have been discussed as 1-1.
  12. Think I led Baltimore County in hitting the year after Ron Swoboda graduated from Sparrows Point ; I was nowhere close to him as a hitter. Played freshman ball at Yale, but then gave it up for snumber of reasons. Because of a knee wrecked in high school ( no ACL and shredded cartilage) I could only play 1B at a D-1 level. The guy ahead of me was named Steve Greenberg, Hank's son, and later an MLB Asst. Commissioner under Bart Giamatti. I also got married after my freshman year and had to carry two lab courses for my Physics major. The coach was not interested in someone who had to miss two practices every week. Some things are not meant to be.
  13. Brings up an interesting question. Which OF was better? Brady, Deco, and Finley or Budord, Blair, and Robinson? I met a guy who was an OF in the O's system in the late 60's or early 70's. He said those three were known as the Black Deer and we're responsible for him taking up high end auto mechanics.
